Question about HP DeskJet 845c Printer

1 Answer

Printing with 845c from Vista throws a blank page

The printer works on another PC with Windows 2000 OS. The problem occurs with the Vista Basic OS.

I followed instructions on the HP site which said I must only swith the printer on, attach the USB cable and thats it. But it doesn't seem to be working.

I read in one forum that Vista installs two drivers - 845c and 845c series of which 845c should be the default, but I could not find these on my notebook !

I will appreciate any help on this !

Thank you,
Monica

    How does one do that ? I searched for the drivers for this printer for Vista, and there are none. There is some default driver in Vista, and it seems to be updated.

    The printer CD also does not install the driver on vista.

In normal pc this will work but on vista it will not work like that .you will need to reload the printer drivers in the vista operating syatem then only it will work.its a personal experience solved many such problems in vista by reloading the printer drivers.

64-bit printer driver for hp 845c deskjet


Hi there,

there is no software / driver for 845c, a basic driver that allows you to print is already included in your computer, just plug in the printer and turn it on and it should work - get detected and you should be able to print.

just make sure you actually select the printer when printing.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

My 7310 all-in-one prints blank pages


Might be the printer ink is finish or the cartridge not touch with the paper while printing. Please check the printer cartridge. First you need to check that. If everything is okay then visit this web site and select your computer operating system and download the printer software.

Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages


Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
